Also, there have been rumours lately that the couple may be separating soon, following rumours that they were both in an open relationship. Will Smith says counselling has so far helped in handling their marital issues and is the secret to their sustained marriage.
“I’ve done a lot of marriage counselling. What happens in a marriage once you do counselling, the truth comes out. And you sit across from your wife and you’ve said all of your truth and she has said all of her truth,’ he told the Sun in a new interview. You look at each other and you can’t imagine you could ever possibly love each other again now the truth is out. It creates a dark moment, but for me it’s the dark before the dawn.
“When the truth comes out and people have to say who they are and what they think, you get to know who they are. I think that’s the cleansing before you get to the other side that is understanding and moving forward in our relationship,” he said.
Smith was initially married to Sheree Zampino with whom he had a son with, Trey Smith. However, they got divorced in 1995, two years before, Smith and Jada exchanged marital vows.
